HIV Hurricane Relief Effort
In response to the destruction from Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria occurring across Southern states and U.S. territories, AIDS United is moved to act, and help address the growing needs of agencies serving the HIV/AIDS community.

AIDS United is making funds available, through this request for applications (RFA), to assist in meeting the immediate and urgent needs of HIV organizations serving people living with, and at risk for HIV/AIDS, in these regions. Grants from these funds are being coordinated by AIDS United in collaboration with NMAC. The effort is managed through AIDS United's rapid response structure established through the Southern HIV Impact Fund, a collaborative effort coordinated by Funders Concerned About AIDS, and established with generous support from Gilead Sciences, Ford Foundation, Elton John AIDS Foundation, Johnson & Johnson, and ViiV Healthcare. The intent of the funding is to ensure HIV-related agencies impacted by these storms are able to provide care and support services to the HIV community in their areas.
